Justin Bieber reportedly “finds it hard” to take criticism.
The young singer has been hitting the headlines for a variety of controversial reasons lately, including a late appearance during the UK leg of his Believe Tour.
The 19-year-old took to the stage almost two hours later than scheduled and was reportedly given a talking to by his management.
Justin apparently didn’t take the criticism well.
“He seems to find it hard to take when he’s told off,” a friend told British magazine Closer.
“If his management intervene, he often yells, ‘Don’t tell me what to do!’”
The teenage heartthrob received a backlash from the paparazzi following his tardy appearance and hit headlines again when he collapsed during a concert a few days later.
Justin issued an apology via his Twitter account and blamed his late-running on a technical problem, saying it had been “exaggerated”.
It’s not the first time Justin has raised eyebrows with his behaviour.
The singer was snapped smoking what appeared to be marijuana recently and set tongues wagging thanks to his on/off relationship with Selena Gomez.
“Friends are worried he may be going off the rails and heading for a burnout,” a source added.
Justin’s late-running at his London show meant many young fans had to leave the performance early, due to having school the next day.
Many of the star’s so-called ‘Beliebers’ are very young and insiders fear he could lose some important followers.
“He’s not a rock star – he’ll lose his fan base if he doesn’t clean up his act,” one sighed.
